THE tickets have sold out in seven minutes, George Groves vs Chris Eubank Jr will take place on February 17 at the Manchester Arena in a richly anticipated ITV Box Office clash.
Groves is putting his WBA super-middleweight title on the line and Eubank, on a run of impressive performances, has joined him as one of the biggest names in British boxing. To kick off their upcoming rivalry the two fighters came face-to-face for their first press conference at the Savoy hotel in London on Tuesday.
As well as being a world title fight, their collision is also one of the super-middleweight semi-finals in the World Boxing Super Series, a highly remunerated tournament format that will reach its conclusion in the summer. The winner of Groves-Eubank will box the victor of Callum Smith versus Juergen Braehmer in the final later this year.
